Warning: Some of the Tanzu Cloud Service Broker for GCP tile services are currently in beta and are intended for evaluation and test purposes only. Do not use them in a production environment. Read the documentation for a service to see if it is in beta.

This documentation describes the Tanzu Cloud Service Broker for GCP.

Overview

The Tanzu Cloud Service Broker for GCP enables platform operators to expose services to their developers from Google Cloud Platform (GCP) with a Terraform provider. Cloud Service Broker for GCP is thoroughly extensible, and can expose new services or public clouds by using custom brokerpaks.

Key Features

Cloud Service Broker for GCP includes the following key features:

  • Easily extensible and maintainable: Cloud Service Broker for GCP uses brokerpaks to expose services. Using the GCP Terraform provider, you can provision services by using a common interface using standard Cloud Foundry CLI (cf CLI) commands. For more information about brokerpaks, see Brokerpak Introduction in GitHub.
  • One common broker for all brokered services: Cloud Service Broker for GCP decouples the service broker function from the catalog of services that it exposes.
  • CredHub integration out-of-the-box: CredHub encrypts and manages all the secrets associated with your use of cloud services.
  • Encryption of sensitive fields: CSB can encrypt any sensitive data that are stored in the brokers own database.
  • Community: When you expose a service using a brokerpak, you can make it available to everyone who uses Cloud Service Broker for GCP and the reverse.
